There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
I love to crochet. I’m not a GREAT crochet-er. For years I could only do rectangles. My husband would ask what I was making, and each time I’d say, “A scarf. It’s a rectangle!!!” Finally my sister convinced me I could read a pattern, and now I can do hats and prayer shawls. I haven’t worked my way up to sweaters yet. lol
Fall is usually the time I pull out the yarn and start back into my crochet mode. Mostly I make things to give away. But not everyone is a “crafter.” According to the verse above, THAT’S OKAY. There’s still ways we can bless one another.
Part of what we love about Amish fiction is this habit of caring for one another. In my upcoming release, The Christmas Quilt, Annie is making a quilt for her new niece or nephew. But this simple gift becomes far more important than Annie could have imagined. God uses it in ways she can’t foresee.
So how have you blessed someone recently? Or how has someone blessed you?
